New Appeals Process

May 29, 2007 01:35 PM

The non-medical NTRP rating appeal process is now fully automated.  click here for information on automatic appeals.   if you have questions about the national tennis rating program (ntrp)click here.  follow the instructions below to complete the process via the internet:

  1. Go to
  2. In the column on the right side of the TennisLink page, under the heading "League Players", click on "Find a Rating".
  3. Enter your USTA # in the box and click "go". (If you are a captain appealing for one of your players, enter the USTA # of the player.)
  4. A page with rating information will appear. If your rating can be appealed (not all can), a blue link that says "appeal rating" will appear at the end of the line containing your rating information. Click on that link.
  5. Enter the zip code of the player in the box. Please note that the zip code is the same as the information on file in the TennisLink database, so if your information is not correct in TennisLink, you may get an error. (Just make sure all your TennisLink information is correct and everything will be fine.)
  6. You'll need to select 2 buttons in this step. The first is whether you want your rating to go up or go down. The second is whether you are the player or the captain. If you are the captain, you'll need to type in your USTA #. Click submit once you have made your choices.
  7. The appeal is instantly granted or denied and the result will appear on the screen. If you wish to e-mail the results to someone (say, for example that your captain has asked you to appeal your rating, you may forward the results to him or her). The e-mail contains the same information that appears on your results screen.
  8. You may appeal your rating at any time, but if you participate in spring or mixed doubles leagues, don't expect your rating to go down in the middle of the season. This procedure will be most useful at the end of the year when the new year-end ratings are released.
